Led by jazz violin superstar Christian Garrick, The Budapest Café Orchestra play traditional folk and gypsy-flavoured music from across the Balkans and Russia. Klezmer, Romanian Doinas, Hungarian Czadas and beautiful ballads – such as the theme to Schindler’s List and Andy Statman’s beautiful Flatbush Waltz – are all featured.


Evoking vivid images of Tzigane fiddle maestros, Budapest café life and gypsy campfires – plus a few surprises along the way – hugely entertaining, immense skill and profound musicianship, a show by the BCO is good enough to make you want to book that holiday down the Danube! Like the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain the Budapest Café Orchestra have won legions of fans through their infectious performances.


"The music is magic in their hands." Sean Rafferty BBC Radio 3
